Incredible Tool
This is hands down the best reciprocating saw I have ever used. Light and compact, yet powerful. The four way chuck is super useful and the 5 mah battery does not disappoint.

Better upgrade from the original version
Construction contractor professional....Awesome upgrade to original version. I have both versions and this one is by far a waaayyy better upgrade. Nice how I can fit it in between studs and cut without having issue. And also loving the fact I can use the blade in 4 different positions.

I like it and would recommend it.
I like it being cordless so I can take it places with no power available. Battery seems strong. Haven't had it long enough to experience how long it lasts. I like it being able to cut both wood and metal.
It seems a little heavy to hold. Should have some blades included with saw, battery and bag combo.

20v compact recip saw
Being a fireplace installer, 90% of installs are approximate rough in openings and my most used tool is a recip saw. Draft stops and flue run through various areas, and I'm totally on board with team yellow now. Makes easy work of bandboards, subfloors, double/triple studs (non load bearing of course), and my fav part is that this little beast still has the juice left to rip up a full stick of 2x4 used for toeboarding on steep roofs . Hasn't left me stranded on a roof yet bc it's still needed for a 2'x1' hole for roof boot flashing or cutting of temporary pressure treated chase top. I seriously considered the fuel but it's a heavy log. If I had to nitpick, the dcs387 imo is to be used with blades longer than 6". It's tough to plunge with a 6 , and end up bending them.
This saw is a money maker-bottom line
Thx Dewalt

The best recip saw for my $
Being a fireplace installer, at times I'll be on a steep roof and this saw is just what I needed. A full 2x4 stick for toeboarding, and cutting out 2'x2' part of the roof for a boot flashing to cap off various flue runs. And still have 2 bars left on 5ah battery. Hasn't left me stranded on a roof yet, and also not too heavy on a tool belt, I keep a husky Velcro tool strap/clip around the handle on mine. Very impressed with this saw

Compact, Powerful, Well Balanced
The saw is typical DeWalt quality; very high. The design lends itself to working in tight quarters and the LED light is extremely helpful. The ease of blade change and orientation is a plus. The only regret is the cardboard liner in the soft case. In the perfect world, it would be made of plastic that holds its shape and adds rigidity to the case.

What is the weight of this saw with the battery mounted?
Joe C on Apr 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The weight is 9.3 pounds
Your kit includes a 5.0 amp battery. On another website I saw the "tool only" compact saw and the specs. said use only 2.0 amp battery. Can this saw use any Dewalt 2.0, 3.0 4.0 amp etc. battery?
Sawdust on Apr 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this saw can use a 2.0 amp hr but you would get virtually no run time. We would recommend a 3.0 ah battery or higher
Does this tool have a brushless motor?
Lrshooter on Mar 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No,this tool is not brushless.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
